Winemaker Notes

Packed with juicy black currant and blackberry flavors from start to finish, this red also revokes licorice, spice and tar accents. Dense and well-structured, with fine balance and a long, fruit- and spice-filled finish. Best from 2016 through 2024.

Pair with red meats, hearty chicken, red sauce with pasta

Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore is a generous and complete wine made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This is the best vintage produced so far in my estimation. The wine is rich and fruit-forward with lovely layers of blackberry, dried cherry and spice. It offers power and elegance in the mouth, with long fruit flavors on the finish.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Concentrated flavors of cassis, blackberry, violet and spice converge on the medium-bodied, dense frame. The grainy tannins are present but not obtrusive. Finds sweetness on the long aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2030.
JS 93
James Suckling
Plenty of rich fruit with chocolate, tobacco and currant aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Drink now.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot, this well-structured red offers ripe dark-skinned berry, underbrush and graphite aromas. The concentrated, savory palate delivers black currant, white pepper and soothing licorice flavors and fine tannins. Enjoy through 2023.

Castello di Bolgheri, Italy
Castello di Bolgheri Castello di Bolgheri Winery Image

The origins of Bolgheri Castle date back to 1200. Since then, it has been the property of the Counts of Gherardesca family. In the second half of the 1700s, restoration work and improvements were made to the building, and the cellars were built. In 1895, the castle’s facade was modified, with the construction of the tower and merlons as we still see them today.

Bolgheri Castle and its surrounding lands were transferred by hereditary succession to the current family of the Counts Zileri Dal Verme.

The farm extends around the Castle for an area of 130 hectares, 50 of which are covered by vineyards; the rest is made up of areas cultivated with 6,000 olive plants, sown grounds and woods. Both sides of the farm are adjacent to the famous cypress road extolled in the poetry of Giosuè Carducci.

An outstanding wine region made famous by Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines for his own consumption in 1940s on his San Guido estate, and called the resulting wine, Sassicaia. Today the region’s Tuscan reds are based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which can be made as single varietal wines or blends. The local Sangiovese can make up no more than 50% of the blends. Today Sassicaia has its own DOC designation within the Bogheri DOC appellation.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
